Sorry for the long wait folks, but I've finally mangaged to resize some photos of the jewellery I either wore for my engagement and first wedding reception (I am having another party overseas for those who couldn't make the first one) or I received as wedding presents. There may be a few random bling photos thrown in there.

I'll start off with the quickly snapped iphone photos...

First up is the ring I wear to work, and probably the most out of all my rings:

1.06 carat F VVS1 cushion with the facet I like (8 main)

Another 0.5 ct F melee in the band

Courtesy of my fiance (now husband) and the ring he proposed with

it's a great ring for every day wear, 2mm band on the handmade platinum setting, the main stone is set super low. It doesn't catch on anything and the stone is a fireball (sadly can't see that in the photos)

next up is my 3 stone ring, which my then fiance now husband gave to me when we became "offically" engaged ie when we announced our engagement to family/friends. In our culture, it is customary to give the bride a gift, and I got to choose mine. So I had both a surprise engagement ring, and another I chose so win win I say :cheeky:

Centre stone 2.58 carat J SI2

Side stones ~ 0.4 carat each J VS2

All stones set as low as possible in an unplated white gold setting by BGD. Shank width is 2mm

Special thanks to yssie for the inspiration for this ring :appl:

I picked up a 0.8 ct G VS2 old cut from ebay for a song and had BGD set it in a bezelled milgrain Barbara pendant for me. Great for everyday wear

Ok, that's it for tonight as it's gone midnight and i'm off to bed.

Tomorrow, I will post the all the jewellery I wore on my wedding day, and all that I received as wedding gifts.

There will be more diamonds, some coloured stones and both white and yellow gold. I hope there is some eye candy there for everyone :sun:

Thanks for looking and stay tuned!

Wow!! Seriously....


You original ERing is stunning- the stone is icy white and the setting is so perfect for it. I think it's a perfect size!


Your 3 stone is to die for!!! I would love one just like it for a future anniversary one day.


Your husband has 2 wedding bands???? Oh and the bezeled band of yours is lovely- as are your studs and pendant!!! :appl:

Your collection of jewelry is really impressive--you've got all the jewelry you'll ever need at the beginning of your marriage! I wonder what your DH will do for anniversaries in the future!

If you don't mind me asking, what cultural background are you from?

My theory - it's ammo for the future! :razz:
H: are you ordering more stuff from BGD again?

W: Yes!

H: Why???

W: Well, YOU'VE got 2 wedding bands when most guys have at most, ONE!

...H silently slinks away... :sun:

(all in good fun!)

Your wedding jewels are fantastic! That is DEFINITELY one jewelry box I'd love to play in! :mrgreen:
